—In today's wireless networks, there is a great need for quality of service (QoS), because of the time-bounded voice, audio, and video traffic. A new QoS enhanced standard is being standardized by the IEEE 802.11e workgroup. It uses a contention free access mechanism called hybrid control channel access (HCCA) to guarantee QoS. However, HCCA is not(More)
A QoS supportive Adaptive Polling (QAP) protocol for wireless LANs is introduced. QAP operates under an infrastructure wireless LAN, where an Access Point (AP) polls the wireless nodes in order to grant them permission to transmit. The polled node sends data directly to the destination node. We consider bursty traffic conditions, under which the protocol(More)
In modern cooperative wireless networks, the resource allocation is an issue of major significance. The cooperation of source and relay nodes in wireless networks towards improved performance and robustness requires the application of an efficient bandwidth sharing policy. Moreover, user requirements for multimedia content over wireless links necessitate(More)
This study provides field research evidence on the efficiency of a " free-selection " peer review assignment protocol as compared to the typically implemented " assigned-pair " protocol. The study employed 54 sophomore students who were randomly assigned into three groups: Assigned-Pair (AP) (the teacher assigns student works for review to student pairs),(More)
Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is generally considered as a competitive candidate networking technology for the realization of the 4G vision. Among the key factors towards its successful and widespread deployment are the effective support of mobility and the provision of mechanisms for enabling service access at a high quality level(More)
